Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities
When a situation or an emergency occurs, such as a water or gas outage, road work, trash delays, community happenings, etc., Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities needs to be able to communicate with residents. To do this, residents must ensure FLFHC has up-to-date information on file.
Keeping FLFHC aware of the number of household members can directly affect the safety of a family. In an emergency, first responders need to know exactly how many members to search for in a home.
Do you have a new baby? Have family members moved out? Have you gained a pet or no longer have one living with you? Residents who have had changes to their contact information or family composition — including pets — are asked to visit the FLFHC office at 220 Hancock Ave. or call (913) 682-6300 to have the information updated.
Notify FLFHC immediately when an e-mail has changed and take a moment to add email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org to your safe senders list.
The FLFHC offices, including the Self-Help Store, will be closed Feb. 15 for Presidents Day. Normal business hours will resume Feb. 16. Residents who have a maintenance emergency or wish to submit a work order when the offices are closed can call the 24-hour maintenance line at (913) 651-3838.
The City Union Mission Christian Life Center truck is now parked across from the Community Management Office weekdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. where residents can drop off items or arrange curbside pick-up.
The second Saturday of each month, place items for donation curbside before 10 a.m. for collection between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. The mission will issue a tax voucher for accepted donations. The next mission pick-up is Feb. 13.
The mission accepts clothing, furniture and other household items, but not appliances, mattresses, cribs or carseats. Separate any bulk trash from donations and place clothing and shoes inside plastic bags marked for mission donation.
Anything left on the curb Monday will be collected as bulk trash and not a donation.
For more information, call the Community Management Office at (913) 682-6300.
Every degree a home’s thermostat is turned down can take about 2-3 percent off the energy bill. Lowering the thermostat 5 degrees at night and 10 degrees during the day when everyone is out could cut as much as 20 percent from heating costs.
